Types of NYC Supermarket Accidents
Though supermarkets don’t seem dangerous at first glance, there are plenty of ways that a shopper can become injured if the store’s management has failed to ensure the property is safe. Many types of supermarket accidents can occur. At Katter Law, we have represented clients who have been injured in a wide range of supermarket accidents. Some of the causes of grocery store accidents include the following:
- Loose produce
- Spilled liquids
- Unstable displays
- Inadequate security
- Parking lot accidents
Fulfilling the Burden of Proof
In any personal injury case, it is up to the victim to prove that the property owner or manager’s negligence resulted in their injuries. This is also true in supermarket accident cases. When trying to fulfill the burden of proof, victims should collect photos and videos of the conditions that caused them to become injured, the contact information of any witnesses who saw the accident occur, collect medical records related to any injuries sustained in the accident, and should notify the store manager of the accident before leaving the premises.
Recovering Compensation After an Accident
If you were injured in a NYC supermarket accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial burdens associated with your accident. The two primary types of burdens you may recover compensation for are economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages may include medical expenses, lost wages, the need to hire in-home care, and more. Noneconomic damages may include emotional distress, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and more. An experienced personal injury attorney can assist you in recovering the compensation you deserve.
